1) enhancing learning capabilities for all sides,
2) using the best available knowledge and sound scientific evidence as baseline information for policy decisions,
3) providing policy support for novel contracts and their up-scaling, and
4) increasing the relevance of scientific knowledge by real life testing and knowledge co-creation.
